Went out today to learn how to use my graphs and find fish on deep structure. Water was really muddy with all the new fresh water pooring in. When water is muddy do you automatically go shallow or can you still catch them deep?

On a positive note, I did mark fish on a hump in 25ft of water and caught a small one. First time marking and catching fish. Pretty awesome feeling.

Yes. You can still catch them. Some fish will move up shallow. Some will not. It definitely makes it tougher. If it was your first time and you boated a fish, then you did well. Nice job!

Cold, muddy water can be really tough to get on a consistent bite. I can remember when I put my 998 hd si on my boat. Took a little time to get used to marking fish on structure and catching them. Ive only been able to do it a few times, not many but it was awesome when it happened. Congrats!

You can catch them out deep year around no matter what I would throw a 1oz black/blue football just and a big worm at them.

I'm always searching for clearer water myself whether shallow or deep. Congrats on marking and catching fish. Like someone else said it's very rewarding. You can exploit this by looking for similar spots on the lake and create a pattern. Make sure to mark cover and subtleties in structure as you're graphing even though you don't see activity in the area. This will reward you down the road. Welcome to offshore fishing. I absolutely love it...

First thing I do when fishing off shore I find the clearest water possible. Then I start looking for structure. The next big thing is figure out how the fish are relating to the structure . I believe When the water is cold the fish are going to pull as close to the Structure as possible. Add some water clarity that the fish aren't used to no matter shallow or deep they will pull tighter to cover. Some times they pull so tight to cover it can be hard to tell if the structure is holding any fish. When the water is like this I like to fish structure That is near a creek or river channels maybe where creek channels intersect. Hope that helps
